"The Gospel Cigar" is an epic 12 song alternative rock music adventure under the influence of middle eastern drones, spaghetti western guitars, Las Vegas show horns, 70s discoteque beats, and early 80's sci fi ambience, all sown together with a tight bottom end and covered with layers of voices.
Gospel Cigar music is: Anthemic pirate drinking music scored for a voyage beyond the edge of a flat earth? Sometimes. (What Could Be Better Than Loving You?)
Gospel Cigar music is: Odetta bred with a "Y" chromosome and doused with psychedelic distortion? Sometimes. (You Never Talk To Me Anymore)
Gospel Cigar music is: Seal turned white and forced to sing for Simple Minds? Sometimes that too. (Midnight Moon)
Gospel Cigar music is: Robert Plant and Tom Jones forced to work something out.
Use "We Should Be Together" as an easy way for a listener to get in the gospel cigar waters. Gospel music has a new, peculiar house-guest.
